MARIETTA, Ga. (CNN) – A suburban Atlanta neighborhood bathed its retired mail carrier with love and appreciation on its last day en route on Wednesday.
Floyd Martin, 61, served in the Marietta neighborhood for nearly 35 years.
Residents decorated their mailboxes, hugged him, gave him gifts and posed with photos with him.
They brought plates covered, and the farewell of the day became a great block party that attracted more than 300 people.
Neighbors invited him to return in the fall to serve as a famous judge at the neighborhood's Halloween parade.
They also started a GoFundMe campaign to send him on a trip to Hawaii. Delta Airlines takes care of the flight.
People from all over the world followed the thread of Twitter on their last day.
